The government closes universities for students for two weeks
With regard to the epidemiological situation getting worse, the Government of the Czech Republic accepted a resolution restricting the operation of universities with effect from 12th October 2020 to 25th October 2020 by prohibiting the personal participation of students in classes and also participants in lifelong learning courses. This cancels the existing exception of laboratory, artistic or experimental work (in small groups), individual visits to libraries and study rooms, individual consultations, etc. Only medical students have an exception (general medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and other medical study programs). This regulation applies to the whole country.
